[HOH Cocktails]: The Cure for Monday Blues

It's Monday.

For many, this fact brings with it feelings of incomprehensible sorrow - the weekend is oh so far away. What's better to brighten your day than suggestions for super-simple Monday Evening Cocktails?! You know - the kind that don't take too much effort and can be concocted from things you probably already have at your disposal! A light at the end of the proverbial Monday tunnel.

Here are just a few of our favorites:

White Wine Spritzer
Who says they're just for soccer moms? White Wine Spritzers are an easy, refreshing way to perk up that bottle of Pinot Grigio you have hanging out in the fridge from this weekend. Add a few ice cubes and a splash of club soda, garnish with a lime wedge and you're good to go!

Cape Cooler
A twist on the iconic Cape Codder - Vodka, Cranberry Juice, and a splash of Tonic. If you like to experiment with different flavored vodkas we'd have to recommend Stoli Blackberry as the perfect foundation for this fabulous weeknight libation.

The Godfather
A simple, sublime combination of your favorite Scotch Whiskey (Johnny Walker, Glenlivet, etc.) and a splash of Amaretto over ice. Certainly not for the faint of heart, but we think perfect for those really, really tough Mondays.

Pink Gin Fizz
In a tall glass filled with ice, combine 2 oz. Orange Juice, a shot of your favorite Gin, and 4 oz. grapefruit juice. If you like it a little sweeter, you can add a sprinkle of sugar over the top or a tablespoon of simple syrup (but really, who has the time to make simple syrup!?)

We hope you'll enjoy in good health, and do not despair - Friday is only a few short days away!
